What do most people think of this time of year? March Madness, The Masters, Spring Training and of course COOKIES! But not just any cookies Girl Scout Cookies. No one can deny these cookies are delicious and are only available once a year but these young girls are doing so much more throughout the year.

The Girl Scouts began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, they have made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.

Today they continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. They are the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.

Their Mission:

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place

Their booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show proves this with the debut of their Digital Cookie 2.0! Their STEM program and new badges to support the ever changing world introduce Girl Scouts of every age to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to help them see how they can actually improve the world—whether they're discovering how a car's engine runs, learning to manage finances, or caring for animals.
